Lester Rowntree Manzanita

An evergreen shrub to small tree with red-brown bark.  This shrub grows to about six feet high and eight wide.  Dark pink flowers bloom in winter and spring followed by hard red-brown berries.

It is best to prune in the time when they are flowering to early summer.  Each flower cluster terminates the growth of a shoot causing an irregular twiggy branching habit.  It is not recommended to prune manzanitas during cool, wet winter months, this encourages fungal pathogens to spread.  You can edge in late spring or early summer.

An easy California Native to grow in the Los Angeles area.
